JQuery style switcher

Hi,

I'm using the following Jquery styleswitcher - http://www.cssnewbie.com/simple-jquery-stylesheet-switcher/.

The following is my JS reference:
//Stylesheet switcher
	if($.cookie("css")) {
		$("link").attr("href",$.cookie("css"));
	}
	$("#usertools .color a").click(function() { 
		$("link").attr("href",$(this).attr('rel'));
		$.cookie("css",$(this).attr('rel'), {expires: 365, path: '/'});
		return false;
	});

Open in new window


However I don't want it to overwrite a number of embedded style sheets (as its messing up with the admin control panel of my CMS). Can any one advise how I can get this so that it pulls in the selected stylesheet when selected rather than rewrite all embedded stylesheets?

Many thanks.

Give the link tag an id and refer to it that way instead of $("link"):

<link id="my-link" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="http://www.my.com/style.css" />

$("#my-link").attr("href",...

Hi,

Thanks for this.

II've just tried this, wowever this doesn't appear to allow me to switch the styles when I click on the button. I'm certain this is due to how I'm implementing it - so any guidance would be great!

Here is my HTML:

 
<a href="#" title="Standard colour theme" rel="/css/style.css"><img width="21" height="21" alt="Color 1" src="/images/usertools/colors/color-1.png" /></a> <a href="#" title="black text on a white background" rel="/css/style-2.css"><img width="21" height="21" alt="Color 2" src="/images/usertools/colors/color-2.png" /></a> <a href="#" title="white text on a black background" rel="/css/style-3.css"><img width="21" height="21" alt="Color 3" src="/images/usertools/colors/color-3.png" /></a> <a href="#" title="Black text on a creme background" rel="/css/style-4.css"><img width="21" height="21" alt="Color 4" src="/images/usertools/colors/color-4.png" /></a> <a href="#" title="Black text on a green background" rel="/css/style-5.css"><img width="21" height="21" alt="Color 4" src="/images/usertools/colors/color-5.png" /></a>

Open in new window


Do I need to make any changes to this html as well or not?

Thanks,

Webbo
